Boombat by finiens Boombat by finiens
Noivern is easily among the top five of my all time favourite Pokémon. It has an awesome design, good stats and a pretty broad movepool. That´s why I have bred my own personal army of these guys on my Y edition, one of them even being a shiny.:iconawwwplz:

There are two versions of this painting existing. One of them you see here, the other has more violet than red/brownish clouds. I got adviced to change the colour so the Noivern stands out more. Even though I still prefer the violet clouds, I have to agree that they blended in too much with with the wings and belly.

Anyway, I hope you like my attempt to use soft shades in combination with my usual lineart style instead of cell shading. It takes a lot longer, but doesn´t look half bad.:)

If you are interested I´d upload the lineart so you can colour it, yourself. Just go here: strawpoll.me/1423805 and vote for what you´d prefer. Once there are more than 10 people who want the lineart, I´ll put a link to where you can download it here as well as the terms for usage.^^



~8 hours, done in Paint Tool SAI with wacom intuos 4

I used one texture in the background that was made by AuroraWienholdSTOCK

The shading not only looks half-bad, but it looks much better than what I do with shadings xD
I didn't really ever noticed this pokemon (to much of them O.O). I just judge them basing my opinion on looks more than stats, cause my knowledge concerning them is very scarce. But the picture is lovely. I see how puprle clouds would be prettier. Too bad they blend with the chara.

To be fair, I´ve got much more experience with different kinds of shading than you.<.<
This Pokémon is one of the newest. Generation six came out last autumn with 80 new (and mostly adorable) monsters, as well as great 3D graphics and moving sprites for all of them. One can fall in love with this game easily.XD
Noivern is the fastest dragon as of today, it has decent special attack and a nice movepool, and don´t get me started on its amazing design. I adore this Pokémon, in my opinion it is perfect.<3

That is true ^^ I like to stick to linearts and flats, coz I'm more comfortable with them.
I've looked a bit at the new generation, I liked some of them. But still, I was a lot easier with the first two generations O.O
But yeah, almost all dragons are awesome.
And I'm really fond of most water pokemons :) Vaporeon is my number one of all <3

I got into competetive battling a few months ago and really enjoy every new monster adding diversity to the teams I go up against. With casual players it´s mostly starters an legendaries, but more experienced battlers know of the awesomeness of underappreciated Pokémon like Kecleon or Klefki. The latter one being a major pain in the a** and a true nightmare to all mostly offensive teams if you don´t know how to counter it.XD

I imagine that if you get into the subject it gets more interesting as you get to know more pokemons ^^ Still, for me it's too complicated :P

Sieht super aus! Ich für meinen Teil kannte das Pokémon bisher gar nicht Oo, hat aber wohl damit zutun, dass ich mich nicht wirklich mit y und x befasst habe....naja KÖNNTE zumd. sein xD....
Mir gefällt sehr, wie du den Himmel schön fließend und mit weichen Übergängen gestaltet hast, aber das Wasser in harten Linien gezeichnet ist. Auch dieser Kameraeffekt in der unteren linken Ecke ist gut gewählt!
Noivern selbst sieht aus als würde es etwas suchen oder versuchen unter der Wasseroberfläche zu entdecken. Die blurrige Schattierung und die sanften Farbübergänge sehen auch sehr schön aus. Gerade in dem Fellkragen wirkt das sehr gut. So flauschig *_*

Danke sehr.:)
In X/Y haben sie viele neue, tolle Designs präsentiert. Auf Anhieb kommt mir nur ein Pokémon in den Sinn, dass mir nicht gefällt. Ich kann die Spiele sehr empfehlen, auch wenn die Kampagne etwas schwach ist was Schwierigkeit und Story angeht.
Hintergründe sind nicht meine Stärke, da greife ich gerne auf Wolken und Landschaft zurück. Bei Wolken bin ich deshalb inzwischen schon recht geübt.XD
So einen Wassereffekt + eine Oberfläche in Nahansicht hab ich dagegen zum ersten mal probiert. Ich habe verschiedene Fotoreferenzen benutzt und bin doch ganz stolz darauf, dass ich es damit einigermaßen hinbekommen habe.^^
